If that is true, I don't see how they could possibly hope to sell any of that new Samsung Replenish.
By the way, if Sprint does get this phone, will it be called something else? I was under the impression that "Droid" was a Verizon-specific branding term.....

to the last 2 posters... what do you love about the phone and how does it compare it to blackberries. i am thinking about getting this phone for Sprint over the rumored bold touch mainly for its size and screen.

I had a bb for about 5 years and love it..when i switched to the pro I still had a keyboard but the os is faster the interface is faster and the apps for the droid are a lot better than those of bb..there are a lot of apps for business and now that they push the email out asap it makes the phone just that much better...

I have an Evo now, but want a phone with a keyboard (portrait is a bonus). knowing Sprint was going to get their own version, I stopped at the local Verizon company store to check it out. I admit I was kinda disappointed when I saw the keyboard was even smaller than a nearby Blackberry.
I am wondering about the combination of small keyboard and smaller screen (I knew it had lower resolution, but until I saw it, I didn't realize the whole phone was smaller than my Evo). Since Verizon only had a non-working dummy model (that surprised me too), I will withhold judgment until I see a working model.

Ok, had this bad boy for a few days already and I'm extremely happy with it. NOW i have a few question for those who are in the know of this device or the Pro version. one of the stock icons i have here is a task manager is that the same as a task killer? and if not should i get a task killer or a different version of it? also in the home screen i have 5 pages but 3 pages are showing. a systems page where it shows wifi connect gps and airplane mode, and the other screen shows messages and calender. my question is i have 2 addition pages that are empty can i remove those pages or can i move those icons so i have less home pages to flip over?
OK gotta another question for you.. i don't know if its a problem with the phone, but i been trying to save a calender event in my phone, I'm not a ****** i know how to input information in it time day and all and i saved it. but i go and check it again and the even is not there. it deletes itself, i have save it a bunch of times on phone and same thing it deletes it... i do have to note there is another event that same day but much later can that be an issue?
lastly i was able to get the info saved BUT i used my Google calender from my PC. but why did it delete itself when i was doing it from the phone?

One thing is that the Super AMOLED screen is of course nicer and you get more screen real estate on the Epic, however, I am just fine with what the XPRT has, games look good on it, in direct sunlight, I had no issues viewing the screen. On pictures, that is where you will really notice and miss the resolution and screen quality difference (and of course video) but nothing earth shattering.
I also noticed that some of the higher end video I took with the Epic will not play on the XPRT. I downloaded Mobo Player and allows the file to show under software rendering. There may be other differences between them but so far I am happy with this new phone. Give it a try, you will have 30 days to take it back with possibly only a re-stocking fee.
I missed this style of phone but now I have some power behind it compared to the Pixi, and my old Windows Mobile Treo. I think the battery life and non-slide keyboard will be the biggest things for me. Getting my Epic ready for Ebay
